Hello, my name is Joel and my art signature is ManoloJolinsky. I am a U.S. Navy Disabled Veteran. I have been welding all my life, even before I joined the U.S. Navy. I grew up learning how to weld in my parents welding business in La Puente California and went to Don Bosco Technical Institute. I studied Manufacturing Technology at Don Bosco and went into the Navy in July of 1985. I was assigned to the Submarine Repair Ship USS Dixon AS-37, where I learned about INTEGRITY, LOYALTY, QUALITY CONTROL AND PRIDE OF WORKMANSHIP. I received an Honorable Discharge in July of 1993, having served 8 years.

I went into the work Industry as a Welding Technician where I engaged in various advance technical welding assignments in Aerospace, Aircraft, Nuclear and Commercial welding. As my Veterans Health Disabilities became more complex I tapered down in the welding assignments as a Welding Technician and turned to Welding Art for therapy. I told myself I needed to keep my mind focused on some of my passions which has always been metal art. I took up Photography and decided to put my Photography and welding together and here we are WELDED WALL ART by MANOLOJOLINSKY.
